#AidToo: Sexual exploitation in international cooperation. Prevent, respond adequately – and most of all: address the root causes
26.05.2018 / Graduate Institute, Maison de la Paix, Chemin Eugène-Rigot 2, Geneva
Geneva, 26 May 2018, 12.30-14.30 hrs.
Medicus Mundi International (MMI) After the scandals of sexual abuse and exploitation by staff of “relief organizations” reported and discussed in early 2018, assessments and answers about how to deal with such misbehaviour by staff of organizations working in humanitarian aid and development cooperation need to be found at all levels: By the individual, by the institution (what values, norms, and regulations can they refer to in order to prevent such cases and, if they occur, to deal with them in an adequate way?), and by the sector and society as a whole. The workshop on 26 May will provide a space for asking critical questions and sharing assessments on what is to be done to prevent and properly respond to particular cases of sexual exploitation and misconduct. But the dialogue is intended to go beyond this: What is to be done to address the root causes? Please register your participation in advance, using the form available on the website of the Graduate Institute. Thank you!
